Robert did you hear about the Proclamation!? Its total nonsense I heard the king doesn't want us going to the west side.
Its unfair, we deserve that land we helped them fight for it too!!
Stamp Act 1765
THEY ARE RAISING THE TAX!! we cant afford to pay more. From now on they are gonna be checking if we paid or not with a special stamp. They didn't even give us the right to consent!
Whats wrong dear, why are you so stressed???
Look at what you've caused!! you imbeciles
Boston Massacre 1770
YOU WERE THE ONES WHO CAUSED THIS IN THE FIRST PLACE
King announced that all land west of the Appalachian Mountains were off limits, Colonists were mad because they thought they deserved the western after the war
Boston Tea party 1773
It is so unfair
I can't believe they are forcing us to buy this foolish tea.
Early tax meant to raise revenue from colonists to pay off the French and Indian war dept. Required to have a special stamp to show the tax had been paid. Colonists wee angry that their consent wasnt included into this new rule
First Continental Congress 1774
I'm glad we were all able together if I'm quite honest
we all came here to discuss what's been happening in New England.
Soldiers stationed in Boston, citizens began arguing with British soldiers and chaos broke out. A shot was fired and 5 colonists died. British soldiers didn't have the right to do that which angered the colonists
Lexington and Concord
Lets wait for the other soldiers to catch up before chaos breaks out
In 1775 Colonists were forced to only buy tea from england, Protestors got into the ships and dumped hundreds of chests full of tea into theharbor. The colonist's freedom of buying/drinking whatever they wanted was taken away.
Representatives from 12 out of 13 colonies met in Philadelphia to discuss what was happening in New England. This did not make the colonists mad instead it helped bring them together.
Parliament rejected every request made by the continental congress. British troops left Boston to Lexington and Concord, April 19 colonial minutemen stood waiting to defend their towns from British invasion. A shot was fired in this tense standoff and American revolution began. A second meeting for the Continental congress was set for them to fight for Independence.
